What is a Costs Advocate?

Costs advocates are professionals who specialise in dealing with all legal costs issues and can represent clients at costs hearings and throughout detailed assessment proceedings. Costs Draftsmen and Costs Lawyers can provide their assistance on all costs law matters, as well as providing advocacy services, with the latter holding rights of audience to provide legal representation in Court.

Many specialist costs advocates provide their services to law firms and Solicitors, and Costs Lawyers are able to accept instructions direct from Litigants in Person.


Benefits of Using Costs Advocates

Some costs hearings can involve complicated and technical costs aspects, and it is therefore essential to instruct a legal costs expert to advocate on your behalf in order to obtain the best outcome.

Solicitors from all specialisms can represent clients in legal costs hearings; however, there are many benefits to instructing a costs specialist to advocate on your behalf.

Costs advocates have specialist expertise and extensive experience working in the field of legal costs, which is now a complex area of law, and they will therefore be better equipped to deal with costs issues arising from any case.
